High Flyers Yr 5

Welcome to the High Flyers' Class Page.

We will be using this as a window in to what goes on in class. Attached is a welcome PowerPoint and Letter that briefly highlights the routines of a typical day, along with some information about how you can help your child to achieve their full potential.

Thanks

Knowledge Organisers

To help with this term's topic - Crime and Punishment - we have created a knowledge organiser that each child can use to begin to understand what will be taught throughout the topic. This document contains the essential knowledge we will be studying in class.

If your child could learn this section by section, as each week we will be testing them. 

 

Some ways you could use the Knowledge Organiser at home - 

  • Children read the information and try and recall it either verbally or writtten down
  • An adult tests them on small sections
  • Repeat it over and over
  • Keep revisiting information that has already been learnt in previous weeks

 

Any other hints and tips that you have found useful would be welcomed.
